[image]Closed Large Cell Clouds in the South Pacific - Image courtesy NASA/GSFC/LaRC/JPL,
The shape and size of cellular patterns within marine stratocumulus cloud layers can change dramatically with the prevailing meteorological conditions. These views from the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) provide an example of very large scale closed cells, and can be contrasted with the small cells described in an earlier image release. As described in that release, cellular structures are associated with the sinking of air that is strongly cooled at the level of the cloud-tops...

[image]Southern Québec in Late Winter - Image courtesy NASA/GSFC/LaRC/JPL,
These images of Canada’s Québec province were acquired by the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer on March 4, 2001. The region’s forests are a mixture of coniferous and hardwood trees, and “sugar-shack” festivities are held at this time of year to celebrate the beginning of maple syrup production. The large river visible in the images is the northeast-flowing St. Lawrence. The city of Montréal is located near the lower left corner, and Québec City, at the upper right, is near the mo...

[image]Himalaya Range Oblique View from MISR - MISR Instrument Team, MISR Project
Switching to imagery from one of MISR's oblique angles clearly emphasizes that India's low-lying areas are shrouded in haze. Such variations in appearance enable MISR to determine haze amounts and to distinguish different types of airborne particles. This is important because they can impact our regional and global climate in different ways. Sensor: Terra/MISR.

This series of MISR images shows an assortment of clouds over Florida. As we change the angle of view from forward to aftward, we see that the clouds show a displacement from bottom to top. The majority of this displacement is due to a geometric effect called parallax, and not true motion. This same effect occurs when you place a finger in front of your nose and blink one eye and then the other, and your finger appears To change position...

As it passed over Antarctica on December 16, 2004, the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) on NASA’s Terra satellite captured this image showing a wavy pattern in a field of white. At most other latitudes, such wavy patterns would likely indicate clouds. MISR, however, saw something different. By using information from several of its multiple cameras (each of which looks at the Earth’s surface from a different angle), MISR was able to tell that what looked liked a wavy cloud pattern...

The Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer, or MISR, is a new type of instrument that has never flown in space before. MISR images the entire day side of every orbit as Terra flies from pole to pole. What makes this instrument unique is that it has nine separate cameras looking forward, straight downward, and aftward of the vertical, over a wide range of angles. As the spacecraft moves along its flight path, it takes only seven minutes for any single area to be imaged at all nine angles...

The structure of tightly packed ‘closed cells’ in a layer of marine stratocumulus over the southeastern Pacific Ocean are highlighted in these views from the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR). Closed cell clouds are formed under conditions of widespread sinking of the air above. As heat is radiated to the atmosphere, the top of the cloud cools. The cool air sinks along the cell boundaries and this sinking motion perturbs the shallow cloud layer into interesting structures such as ...

Small cumulus clouds in this natural-color view from the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) have formed a distinctive series of quasi-circular arcs. Clues regarding the formation of these arcs can be found by noting that larger clouds exist in the interior of each arc. The interior clouds are thicker and likely to be more convectively active than the other clouds, causing much of the air near the centers of the arcs to rise...
